Viewing project information

The OpenEdge BPM Run Simulation Perspective provides additional views—Individuals, Systems, Consumables, NonConsumables, Violations, and Recommendations—where you view overall simulation information, independent of the processes. Click the Individuals, Systems, Consumables, and NonConsumables views after starting the simulation run. Click the Violations and Recommendations views after completing the simulation run (as described in After completion of simulation).
*Individuals view: indicates the utilization of individual (or human) performers in the process, and the current task (if any) for each performer.
The Individuals view displays the following runtime information of individual performers:
Table 77. Individuals view
Heading
Description
Name
Displays the name of the performer. A blue icon indicates that the performer is available. A grey icon indicates that the performer is unavailable.
Cost per Hour
Displays the cost per hour defined for each performer.
Available For
Displays the total duration (in terms of hours, minutes, seconds) for which this performer is available.
Total Cost
Displays the total cost of the performer, which is the product of the hourly cost of the performer and the total time (in hours) for which the performer is available.
Task Count
Displays the number of tasks currently assigned to this performer.
Total Usage Time
Displays the total work-time (in terms of hours, minutes, seconds) for this performer.
Utilization %
Displays the percentage of the total usage time of the performer, relative to the available time.
Current Tasks
Indicates the current task (if any) performed by this performer. The format used is: <processname>-><taskname>.
*Systems view: indicates the utilization of system (or adapter) performers in the process, and the current task (if any) for each performer.
The Systems view displays the following runtime information of adapter performers:
Table 78. Systems view
Heading
Description
Name
Displays the name of the adapter performer. A blue icon indicates that the performer is available. A grey icon indicates that the performer is unavailable.
Cost per Invocation
Displays the cost per invocation as defined for each adapter.
Invocations
Displays the total number of invocations of this adapter.
Total Cost
Displays the total cost of the adapter, which is the product of the cost per invocation and the number of invocations.
Current Tasks
Indicates the current task (if any) performed by this adapter. The format used is: <processname>-><taskname>.
*Consumables view: displays the utilization of consumable resources in the simulation run for this scenario.
The Consumables view displays the following runtime information of consumable resources:
Table 79. Consumables view
Heading
Description
Name
Displays the name of the resource used.
Cost per Unit
Displays the cost of resource as defined for this scenario.
Consumer Count
Displays the total number of workstep instances that have used this resource.
Consumed Count
Displays the total number of the resource units consumed.
Total Cost
Displays the total cost of the resource, which is the product of cost of the resource and the consumed count.
*NonConsumables view: displays the utilization of non-consumable resources in the simulation run for this scenario.
The NonConsumables view displays the following runtime information of non-consumable resources.
Table 80. NonConsumables view
Heading
Description
Name
Displays the name of the resource used.
Units
Indicates the number of available resource units.
Cost per Hour
Displays the cost of resource as defined for this scenario.
Required in Tasks
Displays the number of workstep (or task) instances that require this resource.
Requirement
Displays the total count of the resource required.
Used in Tasks
Displays the number of workstep (or task) instances that have used this resource.
Total Usage Time
Indicates the total duration (in hours, minutes, seconds) of consumption of the resource.
Total Cost
Displays the total cost of the resource, which is the product of cost of the resource and the total usage time.
After the simulation run is completed, all status indicators are green (for completed) and the Exit Simulation button () is activated.
